David Bowie is back, in style. The ‘Let’s Dance’ singer’s first album after a decade-long break called ‘The Next Day’, is giving fans and critics Bowie at his best. The singer is already getting rave reviews two weeks before the release of his album. Some media reports are also calling this ‘the greatest comeback album in rock ’n’ roll history’.
Although the making of the new album was surrounded by secrecy, the surprised public got an introduction to Bowie’s new music with the release of the album’s first single, ‘Where Are We Now?’. It released on the ‘Station to Mars’ singer’s 66th birthday on January 8, 2013. Critics praised it, describing it as ‘beautifully strange’ and said that they look forward to more from the musician. Along with excellent reviews from a variety of leading industry publications, this week also brought the release of Bowie’s second single, on February 25, 2013, called ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’. It also featured a video with actress Tilda Swinton and model Andrej Pejic.
The album is, without a doubt, inspired by Bowie’s time spent in Berlin in the 1970’s, which was a groundbreaking period for the singer. Still, ‘The Next Day’ is not necessarily nostalgic, as the songs are ‘all about today’.
The ‘Under Pressure’ singer’s much-anticipated album will be available in the UK on March 11, 2013 and in the US on March 12, 2013.
